The Lords Prayer

The lords is my shepherd, I can’t tell you why
I was born locked into hunger never will I cry.
I was abused so often I was getting ready to die
then seduced by the TV now still willing to try.

Past through schools without any reflections
I’m out on the streets without any directions.
Our scholars have shown I was a statistic
The rich shall never know how life is sadistic.

Pride was the key never shall I show the pain
then used all my strength just to remain sane.
I found my escape lying deep within my mind
I could have chosen the gun, couldn’t do the time.

The words I am written can it be my Messiah!
They brought from hell then lifted me higher.
The lord’s prayer I say now with conviction
This time around I am relieved of restrictions.

With my eyes wide open now my words flow free
For the first time in my life, It doesn’t hurt to be me.

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
